Mellokollen is a site I developed together with @cperriard and @luminita with design by @hisekaldma. It’s a visualization/data journalism site about Melodifestivalen, the vastly popular annual music festival which also serves as the qualification competition for the Eurovision Song Contest.

Kvartersregeringen / Hack for Sweden

Together with friends @jensfinnas and @hisekaldma I won the Best Data Visualization award at Hack for Sweden 2014 with an app called Kvartersregeringen. The app simulated a government election based on what voters in your own constituency would have elected.

Braceana is a lightweight, markdown-based CMS geared towards quick and easy stats publication using R-flavored markdown. It includes support for interactive graphics through Shiny based apps. I developed it in two days’ time as a proof of concept, so feel free to contribute to the source code!
